Hollydene Estate Wines & Vines Restaurant, the gateway to the rich Upper Hunter Valley, lies just 10 kilometres to the west of Jerry’s Plains and about a 10 minute drive from Retreat.
Hollydene wines are produced from three of the oldest and most iconic vineyards in the Upper Hunter Valley, being Hollydene, Wybong and Arrowfield. Owner Karen Williams has assembled a portfolio of premium wines, sparklings and liqueur crafted together with her dynamic and new age Pokolbin-based winemaker Matt Burton.
These premium wines are produced from low-yielding, high-quality fruit. The best environmental practices are applied by the Estate’s highly experienced viticulturists in producing grapes that are picked at optimum quality and flavour. The wines are traditionally produced and then carefully cellared in Hollydene’s world class wine storage facilities. Hollydene Estate cellar door staff are always happy to welcome you to a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to taste wine at your pleasure.
